Anyone up for a Here Comes Sunshine opener?

Continuing with the Kiel stand in late Oct. 1973, the tempo of this HCS is unlike any I've heard. A half-click slow, it's silky and dreamy.
The second set, despite a nearly 40 minute performance of Dark Star > Stella Blue already in the books, contains an Eyes of the World>WRS that is extremely satisfying. The band is unmistakenly headed for China Doll out of Eyes, but then realizes they played that combo the night before. After a fair amount noodling, buying time to figure somehting out, they decide to launch into the Weather Report.
And then GDTRFB. Love the end of this second set.
